I believe the 1995 is the finest produced under the Araujo regime. It is close to perfection. The wine combines extraordinary power and richness with remarkable complexity and finesse. The saturated purple/black color is followed by aromas of sweet vanillin intermixed with riveting scents of black currants, minerals, exotic spices, coffee, and toast. There is nothing garish about this subtle yet powerful giant of a wine. A Napa Valley classic, it is full-bodied and extremely rich, yet retains its sense of balance and symmetry. This fabulous Cabernet Sauvignon should age effortlessly for 30 or more years. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2030. RP
Very deep, saturated ruby-red. Crystallized black cherry, violet and crushed dark berries on the nose, along with a faint dusty, leathery quality. Lush, tactile and seamless, with wonderful sweetness of fruit for the vintage. Already shows lively cassis and redcurrant fruit in the middle palate. Finishing flavor begins subtly, then expands into a very long aftertaste.- Stephen Tanzer (5/1998)
